Prepared for Bragg and Eliana's wedding at Pennsic XLI where Comyn began by saying: "I stand surety for this man, the honorable Bragg Mac Morrichai. A man of considerable talents and accomplishments, among these: Warrior, father, and Chef indeed he has himself cooked this very wedding feast for you this night! A man with higher honor or greater wisdom is rare indeed."

    There's Nothin' Can Equal A Good Woman Still

    by anon
    You [D] sweet pretty [A7] lasses where [D] e'er you may [A7] be
    Now just pay attention and listen to me
    I will not offend you depend on my word
    I will sing you a verse or two such as I've heard

    ( Chorus
    The [D] men they may [A7] bother and [D] say what they [G] will
    But there's [D] nothing can [G] equal a [A7] good woman [D] still

    I saw that a woman is the pride of the land
    We know that they're the joy and the comfort of man
    A man may as well put an end to his life
    As to think to live single without a good wife

    You men that are single just listen to me
    I'll sing you some words that are plain for to see
    If you wish to enjoy the comforts of life
    Don't delay but look out for a good tempered wife

    There is many a man now it's plain to be seen
    That growls if his wife wears a hoop crinoline
    But why not be happy then things would go right
    And let the dear woman wear just what she likes

    Now, all that's around me, you hear what I say
    You that are single be sure don't delay
    Get married with speed for you'll find that's your plan
    As a woman's the joy and the pride of the land
